Angel Oak Park
Estimates of the Angel Oak’s age range wildly, from 300 to 2,000 years. What everyone agrees on is its beauty—the sprawling canopy shades 17,000 square feet of ground, and its trunk is over 25-feet around. The ancient live oak tree’s limbs are the size of other trees, reaching over 11-feet in circumference and extending nearly 90 feet from the trunk. The small, city-owned park is free to visit and open daily. It’s a worthy destination for a picnic or a welcome detour en route to Beachwalker County Park on Kiawah Island. Although it’s tempting to climb and crawl upon the Angel Oak’s limbs, many of which descend under their weight to the ground, resist the urge—it’s against the rules, and locals are serious about protecting this natural treasure for centuries to come.
